KickassTorrents, operating from the Kickass.to domain, has millions of visitors per day.
Starting a few hours ago, many of these visitors noticed that their beloved torrent site isn’t working properly.
Those who try to access the site now get a blank page instead of the usual overview of popular torrents. The same is true for Kickass’ proxy sites.
At the moment it’s unclear what’s causing this issue. While some users fear the worst, the most likely explanation is that it’s a technical problem that will be fixed relatively quickly.
TorrentFreak asked the Kickass.to team for more information on the outage, but we have yet to hear back. We will update this article when more information becomes available.
Update: Nothing to worry about. Kickass informs us that they are doing some maintenance. The site should be back in an hour or so.
